Musician Faith Mussa says he is excited to perform at a big virtual stage during the Global Forum on Illicit Financial Flows Sustainable Development scheduled for September 2 to 3 2020.
Mussa’s manager Sam Chiwaka said the event fuses debate with music to unify people in the fight against corruption.
“The event combines one of live music perfomance each day. The organisers said they opted for Faith after coming across his performance of the song Don’t Run Away and would be thrilled to have him during this event,” he said.
Chiwaka also disclosed that Mussa will perform on the set days from 18.00 hours to 19.00 hours Central European Summer Time (6-7pm local time).
In a separate interview, Mussa said he looks forward to performing at the event but also to take part in discussing various factors that have affected Sustainable Development Goals.
“One of the things that are holding us back as a people from developing is corruption and I look forward to taking part in discussing these matters on a global level,” he said.
Mussa said the performance is an opportunity to get exposure to a wider global audience.
“I am hoping that it will bring with it some more great opportunities,” he said.
The musician believes the organisers of the event noticed him as one of the artists who have been using their talent to fight against corruption.
“As you know I won the International Fair Play competition two years ago due to my active usage of music to talk and fight against corruption,” he added.
Mussa, therefore, called upon Malawians to join him during the virtual forum to be accessed via the Global Forum website.
In a letter inviting Mussa to the summit, one of the organisers Sophie Frossard, said they look forward to having art enhance their discussions.
The event is hosted by the German Federal Economic Cooperation.
